Soaring temperatures earlier this week will increase the risk of heat-related illnesses in Southern California, the National Weather Service said.
A heat notice has been issued over large swaths of the region through 8 p.m. Monday, with forecasters warning that temperatures in some inland parts of Los Angeles could reach 105. degree.
“It’s been pretty hot,” said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the weather agency in Oxnard.
Sweet said downtown Los Angeles will hit 88 degrees, Burbank 99 degrees, Pasadena 101 degrees and Woodland Hills 105 degrees.
The consultation also extends to portions of Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties and the Inner Empire. Palm Springs can fly as high as 107 degrees.
Sweet says the heat was fueled by a sustained high pressure peak in the area, causing temperatures to rise 10 to 15 degrees above normal.
“You want to stay indoors in an air-conditioned room if possible, avoid the heat of the day and afternoon, and remember to bring pets and children with you when you leave the car,” says Sweet.
Signs of heat exhaustion include dizziness, thirst, and nausea, while signs of heat stroke include high body temperature, heat, red skin, rapid pulse and loss of consciousness, according to the body. weather agency.
Hot, dry conditions also contributed to a series of wildfires across the region, including a 100-acre blaze that burned in the Jurupa Valley on Saturday. Residents are advised to take precautions against any source of fire.
Monday is expected to be the hottest day of the week, Sweet said, with temperatures in the store between 3 and 6 degrees on Tuesday.
However, there may still be some areas that need heat advice as this week continues, he said.
